Center bottomed out at -12db level setting. Audyssey needed to make it 75db's but it could not. At 0.0, with test tone, the center is actually 77db's while all other speakers are 75db's. Can't have...

Not sure what you mean?

They are all set to 75db of course, and the new reference volume is -2.0db instead of 0.0 because of the center.


One another note, we watched taken 3 last night (I...

IMO, $100 plus some donation fee software to be able to see what audyssey is doing is money well spent! Especially when you consider HT costs. Maybe we can start a Klipsch waterfall thread LOL.

I am guessing, while you do not want them too far apart, if you have them too close together it creates a mono effect vs a 2 channel (someone has said as much to me too).

With that configuration,...

LOL, you just can't help yourself can you?

We get it, your stance, regardless of owner input, is power amps + Klipsch arent needed.

I guess that is geared more for the real deal cinema systems, which makes sense.

It's funny to think about why we have subs in a HT, because there are a lot of centers than cant even do 80!
